How does this fit with the Recovery Plan?
Recovery Plan Goal: Develop a comprehensive resilience monitoring and review system, and investigate future opportunities presented by the earthquake for improving infrastructure and tourism.
How we'll achieve it
Grow community resilience: Develop a comprehensive “Kaikōura Gets Ready” resource for individuals, households and businesses identifying actions people can take to support themselves and others in times of hardship.
Understand and address natural hazards: Work collaboratively with agencies including infrastructure lifelines to better understand and address natural hazards in the district.
Improve communication networks: Strongly advocate for improved mobile phone and broadband communication networks within the region and support the installation of network infrastructure.
Kaikōura Airport: Investigate the future proofing of the Kaikōura Airport including a runway extension to allow a greater range of planes to land more safely.
Coastal enhancements: Investigate opportunities presented by coastal uplift such as safer and more resilient transport networks, walking/cycling paths and restoration planting along the coast.
Benefit from research: Ensure local benefit arises from science and research being undertaken throughout the recovery process and beyond, by collaborating with researchers and maintaining a watching brief on progress.
